Duluth Living Green Conference

Duluth Living Green Conference

On February 8th, 2003, environmental activists, professionals, and concerned citizens congregated at the 11th Annual Living Green Conference at Peace Church in Duluth. The Conference serves as an opportunity for everyone concerned with environmental issues to gather and share both ideas and information. Forty area environmental groups tabled at the event, but it wasn’t all business. Seated massage, organic food and good conversation were an important part of the success of this year’s conference.

The keynote speaker this year was John Jackson, former president of Great Lakes United, speaking on issues of water privatization. Nine workshops were held throughout the day with presentations on multiple environmental issues, offering something that appealed to every conscientious citizen and group. Building the Superior Hiking Trail through Duluth, cleaning your home without toxins, and transitioning from nuclear power were among the topics. The Conference was an informative and fun afternoon for everyone, from the networking activist to the citizen looking to get involved.
